problems are as they accumulate.

Peltier Story"
ATA 992 Valencia St. at 21st
In 1974, two FBI agents were killed in a gun battle on the Pine Ridge
reservation. Leonard Peltier, a leader of the American Indian Movement
(AIM) was falsely convicted of the murders, although critical evidence
proved his innocence. Peltier's arrest and trial were politically
motivated shams. This exciting documentary reconstructs events
surrounding the incident, highlighting the overwhelming FBI repression
and atmosphere of government terror on the reservation. It also shows
the viewer the brave efforts of American Indians like Peltier to
organize and fight back. Free Leonard Peltier!
